Start 25' to the right of Cakewalk. Really good climbing, especially the first pitch.

1.) Climb up past a few bolts and a pin to a stance, then move left out onto the face. Small gear in horizontals protect moves up and right past another bolt to an anchor. 70', 5.9

2.) Up past bolts, then trend up and left on easier terrain to another anchor. 60', 5.8

Two single rope raps gets you back down.

NOTE: The guidebook gives the first pitch an R rating, but I was able to find several good pieces of gear. I kept the rating to avoid sandbagging, but PG may be more appropriate.


Single rack to 2"

Matt's right, PG is more accurate, and the PG part is really only about 5.7. The crux on each pitch is well protected. On the burly crux of the first pitch (obvious swinging layback crack on the left), don't be dismayed, wonderfulness awaits up and out left...yup, that's it, now reach just a LITTLE further. Phew, now that wasn't so bad, was it?
